Man Attends Every Inauguration for 76 Years


A 91-year-old New Jersey man will be among those in attendance at Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration.

Harold Smick has attend every presidential inauguration for the last 76 years. He was watching as President Franklin D. Roosevelt gave his third inaugural address. He was 15 then, and now he’s 91.

“You just feel like you’re on cloud 9, or 12 even because it’s historic and I love history,” said Smick.

He’s a democrat, and voted for Hillary Clinton, but while some are choosing to boycott the inauguration, Smick says he wouldn’t dream of not going. He believes everyone should be required to vote. This year he’s making a point of support the incoming 45th president, Donald Trump. Smick says he thinks Trump is “a character” and is hopeful that Trump will do a good job.

He has a collection of every single president’s signature from George Washington, to President Barack Obama. Friday, he’s hoping to add another to his collection.
